Layla CE 61 Ipanema Girl

i can't believe another week has flown by... it's only a week and a half until Christmas! i don't know if that's mind boggling to you guys, but i'm just floored. i feel like there's so much i have left to do! i also need to get my hair cut... and hopefully dyed, if the stylist thinks my hair is ready... i miss being a redhead :D

today's polish is the other Layla i got in the mail yesterday, Ceramic Effect 61 Ipanema Girl... of course the name makes me want to dance around the room singing 'The Girl From Ipanema'! the polish itself is a sparkly mid-toned green (it really does make me think of a grass skirt!) that is almost a duochrome. the lime green sparkles make the shadowed parts of the polish look much darker and greener. the formula flowed really nicely and was super easy to work with, i used two coats for full opacity. i almost went with three because if you look really carefully at just the right angle, you can see a little VNL... but it wasn't noticeable enough to bother me (and i'm picky about that!). adding a shine topcoat will really bring out all the sparkle this 'Girl' has to offer!

two coats Ipanema Girl, one coat Seche Vite.

Layla Ceramic Effect polishes can be found at Ulta and,, and for around $10! also check out the English version of Layla's website!

tomorrow i will kick off the reviews of the Christmas In Laylaland collection... i can't wait! if you can't wait either, run to your nearest Ulta, that's where i got mine!! Ria :)

:: this polish was sent to me for review, these are my honest opinions! ::


i'd love to hear from you guys! let me know if you have any questions or advice :)
